    She needs a few parts going to get her cleaned tomorrow. 1916 I think, can't find a model number. Her serial number is G6825965. She came with oddles of feet and stuff and a wonderful wooden fold up box. I think the box was from another machine. Now if I only knew what all those feet are for and if one of them is for normal sewing!

    Oh this is beautiful! Love the cabinet. My daughter got me a machine 1903, but doesn't have a cabinet. Lucky you!

    Wonderful oldie! Congratulations on your purchase.
    Check out "Singer Puzzle Box" & you'll see just how much they sell for - quite coveted among Singer collectors!
    You can get a free downloaded manual from Singer web site (Singersewing machines.com) that should explain how the accessory attachments are used - some were very elaborate from the day when 1) most people sewed their own clothes, curtains, bedding, etc. and 2) sewing machines did not have built-in attachments.
    When Mom was young, she used every one of those attachments!

    Betty is beautiful! :) She's a model 66-1, and unless those attachments in the puzzle box are back clamps, they most likely don't fit your machine...with an exception...if someone has changed out the presser foot bar to take side clamps.

    The Singer Puzzle boxes WITH attachments sell for 40 to 60 dollars... :)

    Mine also came with a fold up box with pieces in it. Some of the pieces were a ruffler, a binder of some sorts and a hem piece. I don't know how to use them but I have them. Yours is probably like mine. I downloaded a manual of singer.com. That is how I found out what the pieces were. Congrats on your new machine. I love mine.

    I have a 1914 model which loads the presser feet from the rear instead of the side. Is yours the same way or does it load them from the side. I have to buy a conversion kit for that yet. However, I LOVE the way it stitches so straight and true. It is the only machine I have been using for months.

    Good luck with yours. I found a manual online by googling the year and Singer Red Eye. Perhaps you can do the same. Also if you post or send a pic I might be able to tell you about those pieces.
